Eliodomestico – A Solar Oven That Transforms Salty Water Into Drinkable Water

Eliodomestico – A Solar Oven That Transforms Salty Water Into Drinkable Water

Two of the largest problems in the world are food supply and fresh clean water. Three-forth of the world is filled with water. Most of these water are dirty, salty and therefore undrinkable. In fact, of all the water on earth, only very few percentage of water is available for us to use and drink. On the other hand, finding drinking water in this polluting world in a very easy way is a nightmare. But an Italian designer Gabriele Diamanti doesn’t believe that. He has made a solar oven called Eliodomestico that can transform salty water into drinkable water. 5 liters of salty water can be transformed into drinkable water daily.

Worst Solar Storm In History Set To Hit The Earth Today

Worst Solar Storm In History Set To Hit The Earth Today

A big sunspot called AR1520 has unchained an X1.4-class solar flare on July 12 at 16:53 UT. The X-class solar flare is supposed to be geoeffective and concerned the space weather experts. The blast has thrown a wave of solar plasma also known as Coronal Mass Ejection (CME) directly toward our planet and it will spur a geomagnetic storm over the Earth. According to forecasts, the solar storm is supposed to hit the Earth today. Experts are expecting minor to moderate impacts on satellites and communications due to the solar flare.
